In a major development, at least seven Punjabi University staffers have been booked in a fund embezzlement case on Monday.
According to the information, the case has been registered under various sections of the Indian Penal Code in the case of embezzlement of central funds in the Punjabi University.
The complaint has been registered against three senior university employees and four others. The identification of these seven people has not been disclosed yet.
Last month, Punjabi University vice-chancellor Prof Arvind suspended two officials and terminated a contractual peon after a fact-finding committee indicted them in an embezzlement case.
Those suspended were identified as senior assistant Nishu Chaudhary and superintendent Raminder Kaur while the peon was identified as Jatinder Singh.
Both Nishu and Ramnider were regular employees and they were even transferred from the university.
The matter came to light after an internal audit department and the finance wing flagged issues in five bills amounting to Rs 6 lakh.
